 9. Regardless of how filthy it is, DO NOT wash his favorite cap.

 8. Get used to having bovine fecal samples stored in the fridge.

 5. You don’t have to eat mountain oysters but you may have to cook them.

 4. When making a parts run, insist on terminology more specific than ‘thingamajig.’

 3. Don’t even bother trying to cook his mom’s specialties — you will fail.
